Tax Forms

The Library has many resources to help you find answers to your tax questions. Library staff cannot answer your specific tax questions.

Tax Forms

Federal

  • Forms 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ are available at some library locations. Instructions may not be available yet, but usually arrive in late January or early February. Contact your local library to check availability.
  • Due to federal budget cuts, the IRS is unable to deliver most other forms, instructions, and publications that were available in previous years.
  • You can print any form you need on demand at the IRS website. Forms may be printed from a Library location for $0.10 per page.

Kansas

  • The State of Kansas sends paper tax forms upon request. The Library will not receive any paper Kansas tax forms or Homestead booklets.
  • To request state forms, call (785) 296-4937. You can request one Kansas income tax booklet to be sent to your home address.
  • Residents can go to https://www.kansas.gov/webfile for free and safe online filing for Kansas Individual Income Tax Returns.

Tax Scams

The IRS does not contact you by e-mail, text message, or social media to obtain personal or financial information. The IRS does not threaten you with lawsuits or imprisonment. These are all signs of scams.
